Friday- Friends With Flair

Happy Friday!!! I was feeling a bit adventurous/zany and made TWO LOs. :) I know, I know, I should stick to cards BUT every know and then I need to physically remind myself of that. :)

This first LO is of my two youngest. They are inseparable and very similar looking but different as night and day. :) The title and 'Equally' are stamped in Just My Type. I also added a couple stylin' stars and then used the plaid journal box and 'loved', 'X' & 'O' stamps from UR etcetera Oct. Scrapbooking/Collage kit.

Calvin practiced Chop Chop Timber numerous times this summer. I was so happy to actually capture it on film! The frame and 'real' sentiment are from the UR etcetera Oct. Scrapbooking/Collage kit. I also used the grainy background.
I hope that you have a MARVELOUS day! Be sure to check out the Unity blog later today for the entire list of Friends With Flair! :)

Wherever You Go....

Isn't he a handsome (a bit sweaty too) young man? Jordan's team ended up being 5-1 for the season. I couldn't see this game under the big lights last night because I was home with Calvin (who is feeling a bit better today) but I was there in spirit. I am so proud of him! He has somehow managed to play football for school, premier soccer, and get straight As in honors classes. I am not sure how he does it! I often tell him that he doesn't need to do it all.....just enjoy the little things.... but he insists and thrives on challenging himself and excelling. What a man he is becoming!! :)

Wherever you go, Jordan, you will go far! :)

Okay, back to cards. :)
Here are a few cards I made with the Wherever You Go October Kit of the Month from Unity!

I used some of the Indian Summer pp form Basic Grey.

This one uses the Boyfriend line from Cosmo Cricket! I {heart} Cosmo!

I wanted this little guy to be 'sitting' on the Sassafras Lass paper edge. :)
Be sure sure to check out the other DT inspiration....links are on the Unity BLOG! :)
Enjoy your Thursday......wherever you go! :) :)

I'm BACK!!!

WOW! I can't believe I took such a long break from posting. I am so sorry. I was working on getting some deadlines & school work done and then Calvin & I got sick. :( Luckily, it hasn't moved on to the rest of the family. :) I thought he was good enough to go on the school field trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday and we are paying for it today. He is already down for a nap. :(

So what have I missed???

***Lots of exciting stuff happening over at the Torendi blog- Design Team Competition & Torendi Spottings. :) Be sure to check it out and cast your vote! :)

I used a POP Frame from the Taste of Torendi kit and the Boyfriend chipboard letters & football for the first one. It was super quick and is for Jordan's last game tonight. It will be played at the local high school stadium under the lights! How exciting!!

The second card is from this month's Joy kit. :) Such a perfect name for this kit!

Okay...more to come the next few days as I get back in the swing of things. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!! :)

Unity Store Kit!

Here are some cards made with the Wonderful You Stamping Store Kit from Unity.

Look- NO ribbon on the first one! :) Believe me, I tried to fit one in but it just looked better without it. The paper is from the Little Sprout line by Fancy Pants Designs. I also used a Martha Stewart punch along the paper edge. The hearts are actually stamped in 3 different shades of pink/red and popped up.

This one is so simple! Just a bit of 7gypsies Barcelona patterned paper and another Martha punch!

Another one with kraft paper! :) The snowflakes were stamped in white craft ink from SU. I used another Martha punch for the bottom row of snowflakes and then stamped the sentiment inside of the snowman. This one could easily be mass produced for holiday cards! :)

I used some of the Indian Summer patterned paper from Basic Grey on this one. The coffee cups are paper pieced and I finished it off with a May Arts bow! :)

Be sure to check out the list of stores that carry the kit so you can get your hands on it! :) Now head on over to the the Unity blog for a list of inspirational links! :)

Friends with Flair & Funk! :)

I am running a bit late this morning. I stayed out later than usual and had a hard time getting going. :) I am so happy that today is Friday and we have a relaxing weekend at home planned. :)

I went a bit funky on this first one. Not sure if I like it or not but it is different! :) I used the October Kit of the Month: Wherever You Go and some Sassafras Lass paper.
I am out of white cardstock so had to use my glossy stash for this one. It was super quick, outside of letting the ink dry! :) Again, the image & sentiment are from the October Kit of the Month.

Do you have a card making/technique question? Be sure to send it to Your question could be featured in the Paper Crafts magazine!! :)

Be sure to see the entire list of Friends with Flair on the Unity Blog HERE for some amazing inspiration!! :)

Have a wonderful Friday!!
